Package: net-tools
Version: 1.60-22
Severity: important

Hi folks,

I have a Debian lenny box here which is still suffering partially from this
bug.  I tried upgrading net-tools to the squeeze version of the package but it
made no difference.

For tcp6 sessions, running "netstat -na -W --listen", I get complete columns
like this:

tcp6       0      0 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1114::a5:22 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1211:21a:a0ff:fe8c:7d15:53683 ESTABLISHED

just what I'm hoping for.

However, for a udp6 listener, I still see truncation:

udp6       0      0 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1114:123 :::*
udp6       0      0 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1111:123 :::*
udp6       0      0 fe80::211:43ff:fedd:123 :::*
udp6       0      0 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1:21:123 :::*
udp6       0      0 2001:XXXX:XXXX:1111:123 :::*
udp6       0      0 fe80::211:43ff:fedd:123 :::*

so it appears this bug is only partially fixed.

Or am I misunderstanding something?
